Angelica Mesiti has been developing research into methods of communication, beyond speech or writing, to create new languages based on existing systems. In her video installations, she is interested in questions of translation of various cultural phenomena, through sound, music, or the body, spontaneous or choreographed gestures. The artist highlights, with sensitivity and delicacy, the grace and inventiveness of everyday life, while underlining the social and political outreach of music and performance.
